Anti-Slavery Statement

We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in any part of our business or in our supply chains. This statement is made on behalf of Haynes and Boone CDG LLP pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the "Act") and constitutes our slavery and human trafficking statement.

1. Anti-Slavery Policy

1.1 Our anti-slavery policy reflects our zero tolerance approach to modern slavery and our commitment to being a responsible business which operates with integrity across all aspects of our operations, including our supply chains.

1.2 We also have Whistleblowing and Grievance Policies which are published on our Intranet to ensure that staff can raise any concerns confidentially and be assured that these concerns are being dealt with appropriately.

2. Supplier Due Diligence

2.1 Our procurement process includes vetting every new supplier and carrying out a risk analysis based on the nature and value of the product or service.

2.2 All new suppliers are required to complete a supplier’s statement and confirm that they comply with all local anti-slavery laws and have in place effective procedures and controls to ensure that no form of slavery or human trafficking is taking place anywhere within their business or supply chains.

3. Training

To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our business and in our supply chains, those staff involved in sourcing/managing a supply chain have been trained so that they are able to identify risk factors, understand the implications and assist us with implementing the Anti-Slavery Policy effectively. Partners and our Business Services Team are required to update the schedule of suppliers quarterly and have been advised that their teams should inform the Professional Conduct team before a contract with a supplier is signed, so that they can commence the due diligence process detailed above.

4. Further Steps

We are currently reviewing our entire procurement process and will be introducing specific measures to ensure that our obligations under the Act are passed through our supply chain. These will include:

4.1 implementing a post-approval assurance programme, including periodic and/or risk-based audits of suppliers;

4.2 obtaining a contractual right to audit suppliers where appropriate;

4.3 requesting existing suppliers to complete a supplier’s integrity statement at the time of the next renewal;

4.4 raising awareness of this Statement and our Anti-Slavery Policy across all staff and as part of the 'new joiner' induction process.
